Congrats to all the winners at the recent Canberra Region Tourism Awards held at the National Gallery of Australia on Friday evening. A special mention goes to the Canberra and Region Visitors Centre, which took out the award for Visitor Information Services. We were very pleased to assist Visit Canberra in the design and delivery of the new Visitors Centre at Regatta Point in 2016 and more recently with the opening of a new Information Kiosk at Canberra International Airport. Both are excellent touch points for visitors and locals alike to make the most of what Canberra and surrounding regions have to offer!
AMC is delighted to announce that our team was awarded a Commendation for Interior Architecture for the Denman Village Supermarket at last night’s 2019 AIA ACT Chapter Awards. This significant achievement reflects the outstanding efforts of AMC’s interior design team and the vision of Capital Estate Developments for the Denman Prospect Local Centre. Denman Village challenges the traditional Canberra local centre paradigm, successfully integrating residential apartments and townhouses with retail, hospitality, health and commercial offerings within a bustling precinct enhanced by landscape and sculptural elements.
The world-class IGA supermarket anchors the mixed-use precinct and has become a shopping destination within its own right. At 1,000m2 the supermarket offers unique, exceptional fresh produce to the Molonglo Valley within an inviting and high-quality setting. The supermarket’s inviting and voluminous entry foyer addresses a central pedestrian plaza, augmented by a feature glazed stairwell / lift volume which connects the retail precinct to the townhouses on the upper level podium.
Congratulations team and to all the other award winners and participants on the night!

AMC is excited that The Central by Goodwin has won the 2019 Rider Levett Bucknall ACT Property Development of the Year Award at the PCA’S “Roman Empire” themed ACT Awards night on Friday! This high quality retirement living development, designed by AMC, has been recognised as an innovative new approach to seniors housing that successfully integrates a new community into the heart of Crace, offering residents a range of housing choices and, unlike many such developments, their own front door. As a mixed-use precinct, it is effectively an extension of the Crace village centre and includes a sophisticated central urban landscaped area. This is the second time Goodwin has won this award, again supported by AMC, and the development is now a strong candidate for the Aurex Group Award for Best Retirement Living Development at the National PCA Awards night later this month. We wish Goodwin the best of luck!
Congratulations to all involved and to the other industry winners on the night.
